Do you need to perform a PCR test for COVID-19 while travelling abroad? Depending on the circumstances, you may be asked to provide a certified translation of the test results. In this case, you will need to hire a professional translator.
When is it necessary to translate the results of a PCR test?
A PCR screening test with negative results for COVID-19 may be required by certain authorities and organisations (customs, airlines, etc.), for example for a trip or a visa application.
This requirement depends on the regulations put in place by each country according to the current status of the health crisis in that country. For example, if you are travelling from a country at risk, your country of destination may require a negative test result on arrival at the airport.
If you need to provide a screening test, it may be necessary to have a professional translation done (if the language in which the results were written is different from the language used in the country of destination).
